Basically they asked what boost I’ll be running and set it to suit. So mines optimised for 8-10 psi

From their site: Turbo Electronic Distributor.Special advance curve for modified engines running higher boost than standard.Fully modified advance curve to suit Hi-boost applications. As used by us on all our modified Turbo engines. We now produce 3 different distributors 6-8 Psi - 8-10 Psi _ 10-14 Psi

Please state boost when ordering.

NOTE: Above 14 Psi we recommend Polestar or similar management systems.

But it does all fit, no fowling.
Need to do oil feed and return lines now.

It’s a really neat manifold setup isn’t it? Looking forward to seeing your progress

Looking good. I'm doing a much longer-term, much reduced cost version :) I'll be interested to see how it comes along, with timing options etc.

Cool, is their any concern about extra heat on the firewall?

There has been no mention of it, but I’ll be applying some protective heat shielding to be safe.
Considering a turbo blanket, doing more research first.


Here's some of my heat mitigation...

For my turbo build I'll also be adding turbo blanket too - I think that's a good call.

Edit: also, I don't have a pic handy, but I use this stuff as heat shield, cut and bent as needed.
